UNIFORMS

STANDARDS OF DRESS

The following standards of dress apply any time students are in uniform or casual dress on campus. All clothes shall be modest, well fitting and in good repair to present a neat, clean appearance. While the school understands that parents are responsible to God for the teaching their children receive in every area of life, including the matter of dress, CCS requires students to follow the school dress code as well as parental support of school policies. Therefore, we expect that our families will partner with our teachers in resolving any dress code violations. Our dress code policies provide preparation for our students to one day enter the job market where they may work in an office environment that might carry some form of dress code standards. We ask parents to make certain that their children come to school appropriately attired in accordance with the CCS dress code. All administrative decisions on appropriate student appearance are final.

 

Physical Education Uniforms

Physical Education uniforms consist of a CCS wick shirt and uniform PE shorts. This uniform is required for grades 3-12. Elementary students in grades 3-6 wear the PE uniform all day on PE days. Please note that no other shirt or other color shorts meets uniform requirements. In cold weather, students are permitted to wear PE shorts or CCS uniform sweatpants.
